Rita and Runt
are two homeless characters who almost always appear together. Rita, voiced by Bernadette Peters, usually sings some songs while dim-witted Runt, voiced by Frank Welker, listens. Throughout their journey in life, the vagabond pair have many exciting adventures during the segment. Despite having a desire to find a nice permanent new home, the two manage to live quite comfortably by offering each other a close unbreakable friendship in defending one another for protection and giving moral support.

  • This segment was dropped after the first season of Animaniacs. The reason for this was because it became too difficult to create a new song for Rita to sing in each episode. They would appear in the direct-to-video film Wakko's Wish and make occasional cameos in the series.
